Rhubarb bars

Last week, a lady from our church gave us some rhubarb. I've not had rhubarb in many years, and searched online for what to do with it. (I also looked for ingredients that I had IN my house!) I found a delicious recipe on for rhubarb bars. Now if I ever get rhubarb again, I've got a great dessert recipe I can use with it!

I thought you might like to see and use the recipe too, so here it is:
(The original recipe is found here.)

Original recipe makes 30 bars

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan. (I used a 9 X 13" pan)
  2. In a large bowl, stir together 2 cups of flour and baking powder. Cut in 1/2 cup of butter by pinching between your fingers or using a fork or pastry cutter until the mixture is crumbly. Stir in the egg and milk just until the mixture is moistened. Pat into the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread rhubarb over the crust in an even layer, then sprinkle the dry gelatin powder over the rhubarb.
  3. Prepare the topping by stirring together 2 cups white sugar and 1 cup flour. Cut in 1/2 cup of butter as you did for the crust. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the rhubarb.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the topping is golden brown and the rhubarb is tender enough to easily pierce with a fork, about 45 minutes. Cool and then cut into bars to serve.

    Let me know if you try this recipe-- I'd love to hear your review!

    Exodus 29:2
    And from the finest wheat flour make round loaves without yeast, thick loaves without yeast and with olive oil mixed in, and thin loaves without yeast and brushed with olive oil.

    Ezekiel 16:19
    Also the food I provided for you—the flour, olive oil and honey I gave you to eat—you offered as fragrant incense before them. That is what happened, declares the Sovereign Lord.

    Matthew 13:32-34
    Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.”
    He told them still another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into about sixty pounds of flour until it worked all through the dough.”
    Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable.

    Made these last night for Bible study - yum! I think next time I will add something to the bottom crust as it was a bit dry and tasteless - maybe lemon juice or cinnamon and vanilla...a teensy bit of brown sugar? Otherwise, it was yummy and didn't last long! :) Thanks for sharing the recipe! :)
